    If the eyepatch evade is Crisis Evasion, it may be worth noting that it is not stackable with other equipment that provides the same passive (Swordbreaker, Zephyr Cape, Demon Shield , Gladiator Shield, etc).

    Hey 15% HP on a hat is actually not horrible, decent starter gear.

    It is not just starter gear. 15% HP and 5% phys. evasion is great since evasion tanks need that additional HP against magic attacks.

    You have a point. I transitioned away from evade gear so I'm not bothered, but I'll grab it just in case.

    It is actually very good. The only head gears that give more HP are STMRs

    Raw HP is not something I look for on my headgears though.

    "Akstar - Out for Vengeance" sounds like a direct-to-video sequel of a B-action movie from the 80´s.

    Got Queen Esther, and a no-guarantee Akstar banner, so no desire to pull. But hey, maybe one of them will drop with the day 5 & 6 Rare Tix from the May Flowers Login event ::up::

    EDIT: damn, I'm still asleep. Posted in the wrong thread AND there is a guaranteed Akstar banner. Muh bad

    Esther for the bonus stage. Should wreck havoc especially on battle 2 xD

    But am getting kinda bored with these events. Mostly lame story. Only worth for the Lapis. I want fresh stuff.

    Yes, but this is for evade builds. The only other head gears that give evade are both strictly worse than this. My evade build Bart will make very good use of this.

    The eye patch is a great upgrade if you only have Raven's Beret.

    Bonus stage video, all missions, four man team:



    I really wish these still had some challenge to them like Folka's event..... unfortunately all story events from now until current JP are easy mode same as second week "trial" bosses. Oh well, easy loot I guess.

    Sounds like the Folka event bonus stage had too much of a negative reaction in JP from newer players. That would explain why all the others are much easier. And GUMI just copies it directly from JP as always.

    I still remember the phrases where they wanted to adjust the trials to GL levels because we could not stack materia and still copied everything.
    Or how they skipped Scorn of Echidna. It would have been a great move to get some GLEX trials that everyone is waiting for.

    Ugh, Tomoe's background story is just...Sasuke and the Uchiha clan's background story. So shameless Scumi-Alim, lmfao.
